Default Curve to Bold... Help!

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys... gonna get my Bold in a few hours and would like to know how should I transfer my Curve data, music, wallpaper etc to the Bold?

I have a 1 Gb card and most of my music, pics are on that card

I backed up the bb this morning already

How can I erase ALL from the Curve as I need to give it back to my company?

TIA

Desktop Manager > Switch Device Wizard, will move all your settings, contacts, data, calendar, etc., from the Curve to the Bold. Just follow the directions.

For the Media Card, just remove from the old device and place in the new.

To wipe, Options > Security > General Settings > Menu > Wipe Handheld.

You are welcome. You might consider a 4-8 gb media card in your near future.

No, remove the USB cable from the Curve, and then plug to the Bold when you are directed to change over.
